Abstract:

The future leaders of the Air Force, the Company Grade Officers, receive only a small amount of training concerning the Behavior School of Management Thought. The Air Force concentrates more on teaching situational leadership skills to its new officers. This type of adaptive leadership knowledge is critical to the type of job an officer faces during a crisis situation. However, it is not always the best method during normal peacetime operations. This project is directly aimed at providing Company Grade Officers the tools necessary to utilize the management techniques presented in the Behavior School of Management. The project contains general information from leading authors in the school of management as well as specific case studies to relate the management techniques to real Air Force situations.
